In conjunction with the Wrexham Food and Drink Festival, which takes places this weekend, 18 & 19 May, Wrexham County Borough Council’s Healthy schools team have been running a competition, or bake off, within the Borough’s schools to try and get children thinking about the food around them and to create recipes based on foods produced locally.
The grand final of this competition will take place in the form of a live ‘bake-off’ in the demonstration kitchen at the Wrexham Food and Drink Festival on both Saturday and Sunday morning. The competition is supported by Village Bakery and will be assisted by Paul Prescott, the Executive Chef for Nelson North West Hotel group.
Charlie Dore is embarking on a UK tour with long-standing collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Julian Littman to promote her new 4 track EP, ‘Finally, a Limousine’, and will perform in Wrexham for the first time on June 8th 2013.
Wrexham Community Choir will be joining Charlie on stage at St. Giles’ Parish Church when she visits Wrexham in early June. The choir will be performing their own set as well as helping to deliver some huge harmony versions of her songs. Charlie says, “We have worked with several choirs in the last year and it is quite addictive. Once you’ve sung Pilot of the Airwaves with 80 or more people, you never want to go back. We are looking forward to working with Wrexham Community Choir and this year we’ve added new songs to the set, including ‘Big Boned Girl’, and of course ‘Finally, a Limousine’, which sounds jolly, but isn’t all it seems…”
The Festival, which opens at 10am on each day, is set to be a fantastic extravaganza of local produce and suppliers with live cooking demonstrations and lots of tastings and samples.
Bryn Williams, TV chef who’s cooked for royalty will be championing food from Wales as part of the Festival. Bryn Williams, who runs swish London restaurant, Odette, will be in Wrexham on Saturday, May 18, visiting the Food & Drink Festival at 2pm to sign copies of his book, courtesy of Eagles Meadow shopping centre.
Live cooking demonstrations will take place on the AGA Rangemaster kitchen with local chefs, Paul Prescott from Grosvenor Pulford, Kevin Williams from Coleg Harlech, and Bhupinder Virdee-Lace demonstrating Indian Cookery.
Exhibitors include Wrexham Lager, Orchard Pigs, Rosie’s Triple D Cider, Aballu Chocolatier, Clear Black Wine, The Ultimate Fudge Company, Taste of Anglesey (ice cream), Mon Stir Sauce, Caws Cenarth Cheese, Llangollen Brewery and North Wales Hogroast.
The two day festival will be held at Llwyn Isaf, Wrexham (outside the Guildhall) — just a 5 minute walk from the Central Bus Station and lots of parking readily available throughout the town.
Local Assembly Member Lesley Griffiths has praised the efforts of Wrexham FC for reaching Wembley for the second time this season.
The Dragons will play Newport County in the Conference Playoff Final this Sunday with the winner achieving promotion back to the Football League.
It has been five years since Wrexham were relegated and the upcoming match is the best opportunity and closest they have come to realising their ultimate goal.
Last Sunday the Dragons booked their place in the final by outclassing Kidderminster Harriers in the playoff semi-final 3-1 on the day, completing a 5-2 aggregate victory.
